Hello,

I have a question about the notracking blocklists in combination with dnsmasq. I have already created an issue on the notracking
issue tracker but did not receive an answer yet: https://github.com/notracking/hosts-blocklists/issues/596

The instructions for notracking blocklists distinguish between dnsmasq (old: pre v2.80) and newer versions. In addition to the
domains.txt file notracking also provides a hostnames.txt file. But this hostnames.txt file should only be used with dnsmasq (old:
pre v2.80):

https://github.com/notracking/hosts-blocklists/wiki/Install-dnsmasq
https://github.com/notracking/hosts-blocklists/wiki/Install-dnsmasq-(old:-pre-v2.80)

Why is that? 

domains.txt example:
--------------------
address=/0--e.info/#
address=/0-0.fr/#
address=/0-100-pool.abseits.ski/#


hostnames.txt example:
----------------------
0.0.0.0 0-100-pool.abseits.ski
:: 0-100-pool.abseits.ski
0.0.0.0 0-173.openvpn.www.eth.bw.com
:: 0-173.openvpn.www.eth.bw.com
0.0.0.0 0-215-5.api.btcc.com
:: 0-215-5.api.btcc.com
